Are we out of stage 3 yet in Collin County ?

Can I wash my car this summer ? In my own driveway ?

I can't recall the last time it wasn't raining. Seems endless. I'm hoping this takes us out of stage 3. At some point.

The NTMWD is still in Stage 3 restrictions. Despite the rain, Lake Jim Chapman is still very low.

While the timer was set for Tuesday, it went off on Monday.... I've also found that it seems to lose a day every few weeks, so I unplugged it and only plug it in to run it manually.
4200 gllons for a family of 6 is really low - you're doing great! I need to turn my timer off. Haven't tested the rain sensor since I had to replace the timer. And since my program doesn't start until midnight... I don't ever notice it running.

Default Drought

It's pretty rough all across Texas right now. I've driven just about every acre of Texas over the last month, and just about every embankment around the highways is scorched.

I had sushi at a place in Austin the other night, and the garden caught on fire while we were there!

Where's the rain?

I heard last week they arrested a fire hydrant for bribing a dog. I guess NOW we know how dry it is
